just when you think you should slow down your wine intake on account of the new year, you discover it’ll help spruce up your home. so you continue as you were.

I believe in the beauty of wine bottles. and in recycling, or better re-purposing them. as candle holders. or possibly a vase.

I was searching for a way to divide the eating portion of our peninsula from our sink, and think I found the prettiest barrier.

and of course, we keep the corks. and any significant dates like [J]’s golden birthday we make sure to document before adding to our collection.

wedding wednesday // LLinaBC.com

a pre-wedding discussion, [J] & I had shortly after our engagement was our wedding party. we initially spoke about not having one. we’ve both been in weddings before, and know it’s not just “yes, I’ll wear a fancy outfit & be there on your big day”. it’s requires a larger commitment; both financially + physically. and we were already asking a lot having our wedding out of the country.

“how about a small one?,” I later asked.

the friends who have been there for us through thick + thin. always. we agreed. and decided two each. and this is how I asked ..

my bridesmaids [kristy + courtney] & my fiance.

I feel so blessed to have them both in my life. they’re gems + mean so much to me. I truly thought I’d have to beg them to pack their bags & come to the dominican republic with us. but they both said “yes” without hesitation. throughout our friendships, I’ve always been able to count on them ..and this time is no different.

never mind that they’re the two people in my life I know will tear up the dance floor with me. and make [J] & I’s “special day” even better.

I can’t freakin’ wait.

ps. happy wedding wednesday.
